Welcome to the March 2015 edition of the HE&WM newsletter, the newsletter of the EU-HCWM project. 2015 is a big year in the project lifespan with a number of key milestone due for completion in the first half of this year. In addition the partners will all undertake national workshops in the first half of 2015 to promote the first of the project outputs. The first of the major outputs from the project is the development of the qualification framework for the award of Healthcare Waste Management & Treatment and the final draft of these unit titles for the award is discussed in this month’s newsletter. The next step is to develop the National Occupational Standards and then the award units themselves. The NOS are being developed now and should be completed shortly. We will have more to report in the June issue of the HE & WM.
